I knew you were going to ask that! <g> I can't look directly as with
the previous MythTV system here: 0.28, now version 30 and while
upgrading wiped the old version.
Old notes say "nVidia XServer Display Config". A very quick look didn't
find a download so I'll let you do a bit of digging.
<code> sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall </code>
<code> sudo apt install nvidia-390 </code>
Not sure from my notes if that installed the driver I needed at the time
/and/ the GUI. Sorry.
One thing that may be useful is a note I had set the resolution on that
TV/FrontEnd combination to 1680x1050 (16:10). The default 1920x1080
(16:9) had an overscan.
